We had a great weekend! Friday afternoon we got to visit with some friends that moved away 2 years ago. They were here for a visit and we met at the park so the kids could play and the mommies could catch up. We all met when our kids were in preschool. It was great seeing how big the kids have gotten. And the kids just picked up right where they left off and had a blast playing together again!
Me and my friend Stephanie (yes I have two really great friends named Stephanie!!!)
Friday night the boys had a birthday party to attend and the hubby and I got to go out to dinner! We felt pretty rushed but it was nice getting in a meal just the two of us.
Saturday started off with a 5 mile run! I will tell you more about it in another post but I will say that I had no knee or hip pain!!! Yay! After the run I felt so good that I came home and cleaned the house. My hubby joked and said he wished every Saturday was like this! I told him...get me back to running long lol! Later that afternoon my Sister-in-law and her hubby came over to hang out. They are in the process of buying a new house and we got to see it for the first time...at least the outside...we didn't get to go in. I'm so excited for them though! After that we went out to dinner together for my favorite...pizza!
Sunday we went to church and ate lunch there. It was the church's Thanksgiving Feast and it was super yummy! Then...I got to go see the movie Catching Fire with a friend! I've been so excited about this movie and it did not disappoint! I think it was better than the first one!
So that was my fun weekend! Now it's time for another Weekly Chase! I'm excited to tell you all about my goals for this Thanksgiving week!
Here are the goals from last week and I how I did!
- Goal #1: Follow run directions from Dr. Justin. Yes! I've been a good listener lol! He let me run 2-2.5 miles this week. AND he let me run a longer run of 4-5 miles on the weekend. Yes being the runner that I am I ran the highest mileage he allowed lol!
- Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily. Yep. This has become a nightly ritual for me lol!
Here are the goals I will be chasing this week!
Goal #1: Follow run directions from Dr. Justin. I will only see him once this week but hopefully he will let me get in a little longer run this weekend. St. Jude Memphis Half is the next weekend (Dec. 7th)!!!
Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily. I really think all of this has helped me recover.
Goal #3: Make my shopping list for Black Friday. This is a tradition for me and my hubby. Every year his sister comes over Thursday night and spends the night with the boys so that we can get up early and go shopping! Some say we're crazy but we enjoy it every year!
Goal #4: Get some blog posts written and scheduled. I want to make good use of my time off this week and get some posts done. Especially since I will be leaving for Memphis next Thursday!
Goal #5: Be thankful. I try to be thankful each and every day. But this holiday reminds me even more of how many blessings the Lord has given me. I am so excited to get to spend Thanksgiving Day with my sister and her family!
So there we have it! I hope each and every one of you have a great week!
QOTD: What goals are you chasing this week? What are your plans for Thanksgiving?
